    It only takes a platinum selling rapper or two to take care of Kool Herc’s bills. Y’all have been braggin’ and boastin’ on MTV’s Cribs ’till your lips fell off; now it’s time y’all pay your dues and step up to the plate to protect the life of one of the pioneers that paved the way for every single one of you: Kool Herc. I can’t believe that all of you million dollar rappers out there accept that Kool Herc’s family now has to reach out to the world for donations, while y’all know dang well that you can pay his medical bills at the drop of a dime without even creating a dent in your wealth. C’mon guys, let’s see some true love for Kool Herc. Peace.

    I met Kool Herc briefly years ago. I’ma definitely donate.

  • Comment from Rose

    His family can apply for emergency Medicaid in order to assist with his medical bills and surgery. I don’t understand with all of the money that rappers make now more foundations need to be set up for those who did not make as much money in this industry. Does hip hop artist have a special union? I don’t get it?

  • Comment from Hardflip

    Maybe some people in Hiphop have millions – and hopefully they will donate – but this is about Kool Herc – not about who should or who could. We as fans are a million deep and more and if we would all donate a single $ he could pay all the best doctors.

  • Comment from Jon costain

    THIS MAN INDIRECTLY STARTED HIP HOP
    Someone should throw a block party and all of hip hop should volunteer with the proceeds going to uncle Herc
    Get well brother

    Where’s Jay-Z, I thought he was “Over charging labels for what they did to the Cold Crush”? come on man give something back.

  • Comment from DJ Coldie

    I’ve contacted my friend J.Cook (temporarily in Harlem, N.Y), ’cause we have no Pay Pal options, here in Serbia. So, he gave some dollars with a note ‘from serbian hip-hop, to kool herc, we wish you good health, and recovery, one love!’
    So I’m glad if we helped and I would realy love Hercules (my alltime No.1 hero)to get well.

  • Comment from chyna

    He’s in the business too why can’t he pay his own medical bills. Why are the richer entertainers “required” or even obligated? Doesn’t make sense. I wish him well but come on people he should have a stash.

  • C’mon Hip-Hop Nation. Make your contribution. If you listen to hip-hop, please make a contribution.

  • Comment from LadyJay114

    @Chyna: The US has a 9% unemployment rate and is $15 Trillion in debt… NO ONE HAS A STASH!!!!

    Kool Herc is still DJing, but he doesn’t generate nowhere near the money that a Kanye or Diddy does. In fact, much of hip hop isn’t making the money that it used to. This is a major recession – even Nas got his alimony payments to Kelis cut in half ’cause the funds aren’t what they used to be.

    I would like to see more hip hop artists contribute to Herc’s health fund, but someone on the NYTimes website said it best: the “gotta get mine” attitude is pervasive in this culture.

  • Comment from CYKEB

    I donated, because I feel responsible. HipHop still needs him.

    Greetings from Germany

  • Comment from Jonny Howls

    This is Important.

    This summer I had a Gallstone attack and didn’t have health insurance. I was in so much pain I thought I would die. If I would have gone to the doctor they would have had me get surgery and I would be 10,000 in debt. I looked up on the internet natural remedies and actually healed myself over about 2 months. Though Herc has Kidney Stones and not Gall Stones, its the same type of process with different ingredients. Kidney stones flushes drink tons of water and no sugar citric juices, fresh pressed cranberry juice, lemon juice, orange juice. not from concentrate. Steamed blended vegetable smoothies.
    But for REAL. I know how Kool Herc feels and wish I could get this info to him so he can try to fix himself without the health care system cutting him open and mobbin his money.

    If there’s anyway to get this info to him that would be dope!

  • Comment from Krishen

    We all need to help him… I donated, cause Jay-Z won´t do, as it seems.
